CORRECTION as of 4/24/o7, Please see above for further clarification, and an apology to readers.
LAST NIGHT, Mike Daisey, one of our most renowned monologists on the subjects of amazon.com, the history of Monopoly, Tesla coils, and snowmobiles, found his latest work, INVINCIBLE SUMMER, hijacked by [STRIKE THIS: a group of 87 water-bearing, so-called Christian, anti-monologue terrorists.] REPLACE WITH: ...what is being reported by the Boston Globe as a group of "students and staff" of "Norco High School in Southern California," one of whom poured water over Mike's desk and notes as he performed.
GO HERE to read the chilling story. And I am not being sarcastic when I write...
INVICIBLE SUMMER continues its run at the ART in Cambridge, MA tonight and through the end of april.
IF YOU LIVE IN THE BOSTON AREA, or know someone who does, please go and see him and listen to his words and applaud him.
AND IF BY SOME CHANCE you are not fond of the work, just leave, quietly.
PLEASE DON'T STORM THE STAGE AND DUMP WATER ALL OVER HIS NOTES.
That is, essentially, the contract between performer and audience that most civilized people observe.
THAT IS ALL.
